dc.description.abstract

Appropriate activation of multi-disciplinary trauma teams improves outcome for severely injured patients, but can disrupt normal service in the rest of the hospital. Derriford Hospital uses a two-tiered trauma team activation system. The emergency department (ED) trauma team is activated in response to a significant traumatic mechanism; the hospital trauma team is activated when this mechanism co-exists with physiological abnormality or specific anatomical injury. The aim of this study was to compare characteristics, process measures and outcomes between patients treated by ED or hospital trauma teams to evaluate the approach in a UK setting and to estimate any cost savings involved. Figure 1 outlines the composition and activation criteria of the teams. Abstract 014 Figure 1(a) ED trauma team activation and (b) Hospital trauma team activation.
